Go Green with your Baby!

Babies produce a lot of ummmm, waste! 1 baby in disposable diapers contributes 1 ton of waste to landfills, and 27.4 BILLION disposable diapers are used in the U.S. every year. What's even crazier is that it takes 250-500 years for those disposable diapers to decompose! Why not be earth and wallet friendly and try cloth diapering? Here are few of my favorite cloth diapering supplies from etsy:

Organic bamboo velour fitted diaper by Lil Adi. This is one of my favorite diapers for The Sprout. So soft and luxurious.

You are going to need a water proof diaper cover for that fitted diaper, I like this skulls and crossbones cover by ReThink Crafts.

Save even more money and be even greener by using cloth wipes! Organic Soap Bits you can make into your own solution by Sweet Sydney Bean.

Flannel and bamboo cloth wipes by Monkey Snuggles Diaper. Bamboo is more absorbent the cotton, a sustainable fiber, and naturally antibacterial.

And to put all those diapers in before washing, Snuggles of Love wet bag.
